About Summer Study Abroad
All Brandeis approved summer study abroad opportunities are cancelled for summer 2020 due to the ongoing world health event. Brandeis will not approve academic credit and will not be able to provide logistical or emergency support for students who choose to participate in a study abroad program this summer.Studying abroad during the summer can be an excellent academic opportunity. A summer program is also an alternative for those who are not able to study abroad during the academic year or a supplement to a semester or year abroad.
There are many ways to spend your summer-- why not spend it in another country accomplishing academic and professional goals? You can:
- Pursue an academic internship
- Complete major/minor requirements
- Fulfill general university requirements
- Improve foreign language skills or complete a foreign language requirement in that culture
- Engage with another culture

While abroad, Zoila immersed herself in Sienese culture by living at the center of the city, visiting sites of early medieval and renaissance art, and attending historical events like Il Palio. During her stay, she was able to take an art history class taught by a Brandeis professor and visit most of the art works she learned in class.
